The video for Twin Shadow’s “Slow” is tagged NSFW yet it’s nowhere near as creepy as the legendarily misbegotten Calvin Klein commercials it gently parodies. The Alex Markman-directed clip finds Twin Shadow loverman George Lewis Jr. fidgeting uncomfortably in front of the camera while an unseen interrogator asks Lewis for peek at his big… talents. The full spectrum of those formidable talents will be on display when Twin Shadow drops Forget, their stunner of a debut album, September 28th on Chris Taylor’s (Grizzly Bear) Terrible Records.
